POHAN LEU

 Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for Pohan Leu Custom Knives


  Direct from the Maker 

Pohan Leu has focused on one thing for more than a decade, making the sharpest blades he can.  His learned knowledge of how to expertly Heat Treat his A2 steel coupled with his meticulous attention to edge geometry create a blade that is both tough and amazingly sharp.

Pohan does not make many Fixed blades today as his Folders have quickly gained popularity! 

  I custom ordered this tradtional Japanese Kwaiken from Pohan and took delivery at the recent New York Custom Knife Show.  

Crafted from a single 3/16″ thick piece of A2 steel, the blade is an assertive 1  1/4″ Wide and it has a Razor Sharp Double Ground edge.  The Double Custom Top Bevels and two sets of Thumb Ridges help reduce the forward weight. 

The handle is wrapped in a large piece of Stingray Skin and then a traditional Japanese Cord Wrap is added on top of the skin.  The Cord is soaked in a natural resin prior to wrapping so that when dried it is durable and provides plenty of texture to insure a positive grip in any situation.  

  The Custom Ordered options and the Silver Scorpion Menuki on this particular knife elevate the knife to an almost display quality piece, but Pohan makes his knives to be used! 

 

    Pohan also provides a clean custom molded Kydex sheath with each knife. 

  Amazing knife for the price!
